On Friday there goes a final match of the series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe and after that Mashrafe Morataza will be stepping down as Bangladesh Captain.
The pacer in 2014 led the Tigers in white ball cricket and the 36 year old later was a skipper in the shortest format 87 times.
This will be his 50th ODI victory as captain if the Bangladesh go in search of 3-0 whitewash and he will be end to resign after this game which takes place at Sylhet.
On Thursday Morataza said in press conference “ I’m leaving my captaincy of Bangladesh after this match. The third ODI will be my last game as captain.”
“ This decision is taken by my own. As a player I do my best and give my best if I get an opportunity. I wish the next captain all the best of luck.”
“ I will surely give all my support to him through my experience and I strongly believe that Bangladesh team will reach next stage under the new captaincy.”
Morataza now a member of parliament in Bangladesh said “ In my opinion there are three senior players available with all the abilities of handling the captaincy and lead the side. Hope BCB takes the best one out of them.”
“ I am everything just because of Cricket and if I were not in the cricket then I would be doing fish framing.”
“My future surely includes cricket and I am always here to give my best if a player requires me. I have to do my work in my constituency until the next election.”
